  1. Comparison of the tolerance of <em>Pinus patula</em> seedlings and established trees to infection by <em>Fusarium circinatum</em>

    Comparison of the tolerance of <em>Pinus patula</em> seedlings and established trees to infection by <em>Fusarium circinatum</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    Since the first appearance of Fusarium circinatum in South Africa in 1990, foresters have been challenged with poor field survival of Pinus patula seedlings at establishment. One of the best long-term solutions is to improve the genetic tolerance of P...
  2. Growth and dynamic modulus of elasticity of <em>Pinus patula</em> × <em>Pinus tecunumanii</em> hybrids in Mpumalanga, South Africa

    Growth and dynamic modulus of elasticity of <em>Pinus patula</em> × <em>Pinus tecunumanii</em> hybrids in Mpumalanga, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    Field establishment of South Africa’s most important commercial pine species, Pinus patula, is severely hampered by the pitch canker fungus, Fusarium circinatum. Importantly, hybrids between P. patula and other pine species tolerant to the pitch canker fungus, such as P...
  3. The use of field and artificial freezing studies to assess frost tolerance in natural populations of <em>Pinus oocarpa</em>

    The use of field and artificial freezing studies to assess frost tolerance in natural populations of <em>Pinus oocarpa</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    The susceptibility of Pinus oocarpa to freezing temperatures limits the commercial deployment of the highly productive Pinus patula × P. oocarpa hybrid in South Africa. Identifying P. oocarpa germplasm with increased frost tolerance is important. Twenty-three P. oocarpa provenances, originating...
